Your skills in reading, writing, thinking, and speaking will be developed and strengthened through our English curriculum.

In each year of study, you’ll be challenged by stimulating reading assignments, frequent writing projects, comprehensive vocabulary program, and oral presentations. And, if you are ready for a still greater challenge as a junior or senior, Advanced English courses are available for a variety of topics.
